Kadia (community)[edit]

Olá, I just found that you deleted [1] page Kadia (community) - as - A10: Recently created article that duplicates an existing topic: Kadia Kumbhar - I think there was an error of judgement - as the page was not recently created bu several years old - and it was sourced and served as just like as disambiguation page for several communities.

I shall be highly obliged if you can userfy page as I have lost some of the sources. Thanks. Jethwarp (talk) 15:12, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Jethwarp. The version I deleted was a one liner with no info that was not already at Kadia Kumbhar. I did miss the fact that it was not a recent page, and that it had more content a couple years ago. It cites a single source, and the couple of previous versions I looked at (now) have that one and only source too. Anyway, I presume there is nothing wrong in userfying it, maybe you can make use of some of it. I note that I know nothing about India's groups/clans/castes/communities (except that there seems to be lots of them :-) So a page with this name may be useful, possibly as disambiguation as you say. Page userfyed to User:Jethwarp/Kadia (community). - Nabla (talk) 22:38, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks, I also would like to build it as disambiguation page and recreate it - but after some research - I hope it will be okay. :-). Jethwarp (talk) 01:38, 3 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you Nabla for saving my page from speedy deletion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jetfighterace212 (talkcontribs) 21:26, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

Hutchison effect page missing[edit]

Hi. There seems to have been a page called John Hutchison that was deleted and you said - move to Hutchison effect (currently a redirect to "John Hutchison"), and copyedit accordingly. The effect is mildly notable, the man not really. - Nabla (talk) 22:00, 21 August 2011 (UTC) - But i cant seem to find the other page, the hutchison effect page..all the info is lost, nothing was edited, but completely deleted. (talk)

  • Hi, I do not recall something from back in 2011... but as far as the records show, both pages, the Hutchison effect and John Hutchison were deleted after a deletion discussion about the John Hutchison article, in August 2011. I have not deleted any of them, on the contrary, I suggested to keep the article on the effect. Currently you may find a article about other people named John Hutchison, and nothing (except a note about the deletion) on the effect. Just follow the links above. What exactly do you want? To improve the article about the Hutchison effect? - Nabla (talk) 11:00, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
    • Hi. I know you deidnt delete it. i quoted you move to Hutchison effect (currently a redirect to "John Hutchison"), and copyedit accordingly. The effect is mildly notable, the man not really. . I'm wondering if there is any copy of it remaining about the guy or the effect. Or once its deleted its gone forever? Cause the effect might have had some interesting info on his equipment and materials/samples etc. Is there any way to get it back for editing ? (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 10:15, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
      • (Sorry for the delay) No, the content is not lost forever(*), the deleted version is kept on the database and may be undeleted. I think the best place to get that done is asking at Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion. Tell me about it, if you do, I might help. - Nabla (talk) 12:09, 30 August 2015 (UTC) (*) It may be deleted from the database, there is no guarantees about that, but I have never noticed any such case.


Trophy.png List of Miss World countries
Hi! I'm user En1206 can you put back the wikipedia of List of Miss World countries. Please! And I have a quesion, Why did you delete the List of Miss World countries page in wikipedia? Hope you read this mesage and Please, don't forget to put back the page in wikipedia of List of Miss World countries.

Nice Greetings! -User:En1206 En1206 (talk) 13:05, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

@En1206: If you click on the redlink - List of Miss World countries - the page shows you a log of the deletions. It was deleted on the 18th after a deletion discussion - Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Miss World countries. Then it was deleted, by me, on wp:CSD request, on the 23rd, because there is nothing there that is not on the main article. Actually it barely had any content - it had a plain text alphabetical list of countries, only from Afghanistan to Brazil. You are free to recreate an article under that title. Please create it with coherent content that addresses the questions raised on the deletion discussion, otherwise it will most likely be quickly deleted again. - Nabla (talk) 12:30, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Take a break...[edit]

You logged a TfD into the holding cell with the wrong discussion date, and redirected the template to be deleted to another template where the parameters didn't match up (so the subst just bollixed up). Time for a break and some more caffeine? Bazj (talk) 16:47, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Bazj, help is always appreciated, thank you for that. Snarky remarks are not appreciated, please, we all do mistakes, don't we? Also, if the subject is a mistake, the subject is the mistake, not "Take a break" - Nabla (talk) 22:32, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
It wasn't intended to be snarky. I'm sorry if it came across that way. Bazj (talk) 08:35, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
...the more I read it the more I see scope for misinterpreting what I meant. Really sorry. Bazj (talk) 08:59, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, Bazj. No problem. I was probably a bit harsh too. Too many people play 'shoot-down-the-admin', one gets a little defensive over time; plus I *did* made a few silly mistakes lately (see below... :-) so I was more sensitive than average, but I think I may need *more* practice, not less. Again, tks and sorry - Nabla (talk) 21:45, 11 October 2015 (UTC)


Template:R from incorrect capitalisation and Template:R from incorrect capitalization still have RfD in them, although the RfD was closed as keep. GeoffreyT2000 (talk) 00:29, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, GeoffreyT2000. If I recall it well, it took me a while to read it out and decide and when I did I was pressed on time to move on - out of WP - and forgot to clean up, sorry. I hope it is OK now. - Nabla (talk) 21:48, 11 October 2015 (UTC)

Laura Rozen Page[edit]

Hi,Why did you delete "Laura Rozen" Page?Have you ever read its talk page??Rezameyqani (talk) 09:28, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Rezameyqani. The reasons are stated in the deletion log, namely, there is nothing in the article telling us that she is considered notable by others and the only reference is apparently a text copy pasted from her profile in one of the newspapers sites; and yes I did read the talk page, but you only provided one instance of a blog/opinion written by her. That is very far from enough for inclusion on WP. There are many many journalist around the globe, you'd need wp:Reliable sources that talk about her, not simply to show texts that she has written. Please see: wp:JOURNALIST.
The one most interesting thing about the talk page though, is that it showed a deletion discussion from 2006 which was closed as a "keep", nevertheless it was deleted soon after by @David.Monniaux:. That is unexpected, but the 2006 article completely lacked sources.
So, while we wait a little while to see if David.Monniaux has some input to give us on the old deletion, my opinion is that if you provide some third party reliable sources - that is, sources where other people write about Laura Rozen's work importance - then I'll undelete the whole thing, including the 2006 version, so that you can improve on it. - Nabla (talk) 11:33, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

@Nabla (talk) What kinda sources you need to be provided?Sorry but I couldn't get what kind of resources is acceptable to you!if you explain a bit more it would be helpful.Rezameyqani (talk) 12:52, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Rezameyqani, I mean something *about* Laura Rozen - Did she earn some prizes? Do some other journalists reference her has influencial? Has she published some book? (and are there reviews of it?)
Picking a couple of random examples from Category:American_women_journalists: Michelle Bernard, has an award, was nominated for another, and was invited to speak in a prestigious university; Elizabeth Bisland made a notable trip around the world, and wrote a few books (and was a female journalist in the 19th century...). What about Laura Rozen? I don't mean she is not a good journalist (I have no idea, but she may well be good) but what makes her stand out from the crowd?
(side note) You do not need to link my username in my talk page. I linked your's (and David's) so that the wp:Notifications work and warn you about my reply, but we are automatically warned of any new message on our own talk page so you do not need to (but I thank you anyway, and you may, if you wish, of course) - Nabla (talk) 23:51, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

Beaumont children disappearance[edit]

I believe that is it important that the Beaumont children disappearance article is in the best shape possible for the 50th anniversary in January as there will be a lot of media attention on the Beaumonts and there will be a lot of people being sent to the Wikipedia article. I'd like to see it as an FA or OTD candidate Paul Benjamin Austin (talk) 11:45, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

El Marino (online newspaper)[edit]

See WP:COIN#Diego Grez-Cañete, this user is endlessly gaming the system. This article, along with other similar conflict of interest articles (like Pichilemunews,, Pichilemu News, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Pichilemunews, have been deleted under multiple incarnations. The MO is the user creates a redirect which they later turn into an article, then it gets deleted, then they create a redirect which later gets turned into an article, etc.... The AFD's closed as delete, not redirect. Pichilemunews was speedy deleted G4 this morning by a different admin, a consistent response to this gaming would be beneficial. Regards, Vrac (talk) 14:02, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Vrac! For a consistent response you could also ask the other admin to revert their deletion, no?... :-) OK, seriously now. I thank you for your information, I was not aware of the pattern. Anyway, wp:CSD#G4 applies to recreation of *similar* content but a redirect is not an article; so I would go for a wp:RfD of the whole group of redirects (tell me if you do that, please, so I'll comment there). I guess we'd then have a stronger case against redirects that we probably do not need, as a search should point to the same pages. Note that I will not object if you renominate it for speedy deletion, though I think RfD is the best way to go. - Nabla (talk) 20:08, 14 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for closing the discussion. Now I feel a lot safer to continue working on the draft. I appreciate you!

Thank you, jdxzhu. Please allow me to suggest that it is best that your wp:Signature includes some link to your user / talk page, so that other editors may find it easier to contact you. I use the standard one, since ever, like this: - Nabla (talk) 01:49, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
